Food feud provides donations for Kentucky area families

A recent ‘food feud’ between Kentucky area employees in marine, refining and terminal, transport and rail (TT&R) resulted in 6,099 pounds of non-perishable food donated to River Cities Harvest (RCH) in Ashland, Kentucky.

The friendly competition began mid December and continued through Jan. 31. The TT&R group won the challenge with 1,074 pounds of food donated.

Adam Stapleton, advanced analyst with marine, is an RCH board member and initiated the competition because the organization struggles with its food supply during January and February. This food drive helps fill the gap between holidays and spring donations.

RCH distributes food to partner agencies in Boyd, Greenup and Lawrence counties in Kentucky and Lawrence County, Ohio.
